Our Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) design standards and delivery specifications define the requirements for the design, delivery and integration of ITS equipment and systems on to our national road network. This includes devices such as vehicle detection systems, lane control signals, ramp signals, variable message signs, CCTV cameras, incident detection, emergency telephones, cables and ducting.
The standards and specifications ensure the right equipment and systems are installed correctly and that requirements for safety, security, maintenance and operational life are met. They also provide assurance for delivery of solutions and the equipment and systems required to build and configure them.
ITS specifications can be inserted into Waka Kotahi procurement contracts as a document, or a document link. This is essential to provide certainty for the ITS equipment and systems being purchased, and to record what is required at the time the contract was signed by the Agency and the vendor.
The ITS documents are mostly interim, or a legacy hybrid of both design standards and delivery specifications, and are in place while current versions are developed under our ITS standards and specifications framework. The framework provides repeatable processes and capability to support the creation of, and the ongoing maintenance of the ITS standards and specifications documentation.
